Interview: Adele & Glenn At Bigsound 2012
From the ashes of several successful musical projects rose Sydney two-piece Adele & Glenn.
The pair had previously played before in Brisbane Seminal rock outfit The G-Betweeners but have since located south. Since the relocation, the band has released their first album together: Carrington St. As the band explain, the name came from the studio Glenn was setting up in Sydney’s Inner West on Carrington Rd. Swap around some letters and hey presto, you have an album title. “The little twist we needed” as Glenn explains.
The two have very recently clocked up a lot of tour miles in support of the release, stopping by most major cities. They will also be performing at BIGSOUND live. As musicians who found their musical legs a number of years ago, they discuss with the team the dynamics of their live crowd, stating that they see people anything from “4 year olds, to old guys who travel on trains from a long long way away”. The reason behind this, the band believe, lies in their sound, which is a mix of acoustic and folk. They give a much needed break to the ears.
Next off, the band will be touring throughout Europe, where they have an especially big following in Germany, France and Poland. Hopefully, they will have a trip via Indonesia on the way, where the new material has received lots of radio love.
Adele & Glenn chat with the team about the effectiveness of Social Networking, a game of ‘keep up’ as Glenn explains, that holds so much potential for young musicians.
